Upcoming Events

When the building is open, the museum does its best to run programs. In the unfortunate instance something unforeseen occurs, the museum works hard to contact possible participants and/ or find an alternate date.

People of all ages are invited to learn how to use breathing and movement techniques to boost energy, improve balance and manage stress during Akron's World Tai Chi and Qigong Day 2018 event.

The interactive program will be led by NG Energy Founder and Certified Tai Chi and Qigong Instructor Nancy Gardner, and will tie in with those being held in all 50 U.S. states and in hundreds of cities spanning more than 80 nations.
